The insidious nature of stress affects every element of the skin, from pores to proteins to the DNA locked within every cell. Stress affects every cell in our bodies and amplifies existing skin problems. It causes everything from breakouts to prolonged redness to an acceleration of the skin’s aging process by as much as 6-10 years – making stress the 2nd greatest influence on aging, second only to sunlight.
Stress Recovery Complex features a new class of patented and patent-pending ingredients based on the field of neuro-immuno-dermatology. In combination, this ingredient trio is designed to calm signs of emotional stress via interaction with stress-related hormones and neuropeptides.
Stress Recovery Complex supports stressed skin through troubled times, easing signs of redness, breakouts, tension lines and wrinkles, while reviving a more youthful-looking tone and clarity. Within hours to days, stressed, tired skin looks rested, healthy color is restored and signs of tension are eased. See improvement in redness, discomfort, dehydration and skin tightness within several hours to one week of beginning twice-daily application of the complex.
